Kat Von D accepts tweeted marriage proposal

Reality star and tattoo artist Kat Von D will soon sport something sparkly on her ring finger.

On Saturday, Von D accepted a marriage proposal from producer/DJ Deadmau5 - who opted to pop the question via Twitter.

"I can't wait for Christmas so.... Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?" he asked, including a photo of the ring, which will eventually feature a black diamond as its stone.

"Sorry for the jpg," Deadmau5, whose real name is Joel Thomas Zimmerman, wrote on the photo. "They'll finish the actual ring soon, I hope."

Von D, for one, didn't seem to mind, as she tweeted back, "YES!"

Since then, the soon-to-be married couple have been tweeting about their romantic bliss. "Mi corazon!!! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé!" Von D wrote Saturday, while Deadmau5 was still in a state of disbelief.

"[H]oly f*****g s***. im engaged and stuff!," he tweeted. "thanks for the well wishes and support from the horde and everyone else! brb while i spend the rest of my evening with my future wife."

Von D, who rose to fame on reality shows "Miami Ink" and "L.A. Ink," was previously engaged to fellow reality show vet Jesse James, the ex-husband of Sandra Bullock. James and Von D tried twice to make it to the altar, but never did.

      I wouldn't worry too much about children; according to Wikipedia, they've only been together since September this year, and they've actually broken up once since then. At that rate, they'll split by Valentine's, get back together by Easter and split for good by the the 4th of July.

      If I were to name one of them a dog, it would be the one with the more stupid name of the two. Deadmau5? How do you even pronounce that? Is the 5 supposed to be geek for an S and his name is actually deadmouse? Who wants to get it on with a dead mouse? I'd at least do Kat as long as I was allowed to wear a rubber suit. The scrawny dead mouse with the goofy neck tattoo has nothing to offer.

    I have enjoyed watching Kat on the various shows she has done and think she is an amazing artist. Sadly, she made the mistake of hooking up with Jesse James post-Sandra which by no fault of her own will have a lot of people looking down on her. I wish her and her future husband the best of luck...but it's one thing to announce your engagment via Twitter, but to actually propose, that does give it a bit of a casual feel. I still view marriage as being a huge step in two people's lives...but it's their choice and if they are both happy then we should be happy for them.

    As for her choice to tattoo much of her own body...I don't that as self hating as one person posted, I think is a free spirit to wishes to express herself, her believes and her interests via her tattoos. Plus, they are WAY cool. She is a photo shoot for her perfume a couple of years back where they covered ALL of her tats, it was shocking to see her "plain", but she is a beautiful woman tattoos or not.

    Its' interesting that people are attacking those with tattoos. How does one having tattoos affect you? It has no effect on you. These people are just like the ones that let a fictional god run their lives. And they also have to throw it in our faces and want us to accept that letting a fictional character run one's life is a good thing. These people are better off letting a cartoon character run their lives. Just as fictional as a "god", but more interesting...and cartoon characters also make great tattoos...
